Steven Keeping gained a BEng (Hons.) degree at Brighton University, U.K., before working in the electronics divisions of Eurotherm and BOC for seven years. He then joined Electronic Production magazine and subsequently spent 13 years in senior editorial and publishing roles on electronics manufacturing, test, and design titles including What’s New in Electronics and Australian Electronics Engineering for Trinity Mirror, CMP and RBI in the U.K. and Australia. In 2006, Steven became a freelance journalist specializing in electronics. He is based in Sydney.


Li-ion Batteries Overcome Renewable Energy Uncertainty Steven Keeping
Renewable energy (RE) promises much, but it has yet to make a significant impact on world demand. Variability and uncertainty make it impossible to guarantee RE resources will be available when peak demand occurs. However, pilot operations have demonstrated that energy storage using Li-ion batteries could provide a solution to RE variability and uncertainty by smoothing the differences between supply and demand.

Smart Monitoring Counters VOC Concerns Steven Keeping
Volatile organic compound (VOC) pollution is on the rise. Certain illnesses and cognitive impairments reveal a link to these chemicals, and modern energy-efficient buildings are making the problem worse. Miniaturized sensors offer a solution by indicating when concentrations breach safety levels.

Lithium, Cobalt, and Lithium-Cobalt Prices, Demand Drive EVs Steven Keeping
The price of Lithium has tripled since 2016 as electric vehicle batteries compete with mobile consumer electronics for the material. But the escalating price, driven by a threat of shortage of supply, is unlikely to dampen EV demand. Cobalt, another vital ingredient of Li-ion batteries, is another matter, and researchers are working hard to find cheaper alternatives, including Lithium-cobalt.

Biometrics Address Password Flaws Steven Keeping
Password security is flawed—as Hawaiians recently found to their cost—because it relies on humans to create a memorable yet tough-to-hack secret phrase. Biometrics, pioneered by the smartphone’s fingerprint scanner, offers a better alternative.

Collaborative Robots: Combining Machine Muscle with Human Dexterity Steven Keeping
While industrial robots dominate—as the best option for low-volume, high-mix assembly in mass-manufacturing—in comparison to human dexterity, a new generation of lightweight robots promises to marry the best of man and machine.

Microgrid Vision Stalls but Smart Automation Offers Reboot Steven Keeping
Microgrids are the key to integrating green energy. But engineers must embrace smart grid technologies before the hype becomes reality.

LEDs and Wireless Tech Combine to Build Intelligent Lighting Steven Keeping
Both LED lighting and low-power wireless technology have been decades in gestation. Although originally developed for different applications, the two technologies have converged to revolutionize lighting applications that provide more than just illumination.

Enterprise Drives Augmented Reality Demand Steven Keeping
While many things that Google comes up with seemingly turn to gold, Google Glass wasn’t one of them. In fact, according to Forbes magazine, the company’s augmented reality (AR) headset will go down in the annals of bad product launches. But the launch of “Glass Enterprise Edition” targets industrial workplaces and boasts several upgrades over the consumer product—including a better camera, faster microprocessor, improved Wi-Fi, and longer battery life—which offer new potential for the technology.

USB’s Future Builds on Power Delivery (and Still Handles Data) Steven Keeping
The USB spec's emphasis on power delivery has kept it relevant and, with the updates from USB Type-C, current with today's needs.

Shaping Smarter Cities: IIoT Irrigation Monitoring Key to Indoor Agriculture Success Steven Keeping
Agribusiness is a habitual early adopter of high-tech, and now IIoT is becoming the newest tech to be embraced by Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA).
